Cultural Understanding and Leadership Program
Cultural Understanding and Language Proficiency (CULP) Program
For Army ROTC Cadets, the world is their classroom. Every year hundreds of Cadets travel the globe, spending up to three weeks immersed in foreign cultures.
The Army recognizes the need for young leaders to develop more cultural awareness and foreign language proficiency skills. Now more than ever, cultural awareness training is a vital component to the ROTC curriculum. Overseas immersions help educate future leaders in ways the classroom cannot.
In 2012, 1,200 ROTC Cadets traveled across the world and participated in Cadet Command's CULP program. Cadets now receive opportunity to compete for immersion in more than 40 countries. Participants experience up to three different venues during immersion, including humanitarian service, host nation military-to-military contact and education on the social, cultural and historical aspects of the country.
